In Greek mythology, Erebus is a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness. Hesiod's Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos. Some literature describes it as "place of darkness between earth and Hades". But in the latest movie from Cut To The Chase Productions and Rick Laprade (Villanelle) it refers to an old hotel on Block island!
According to the production website, Erebus is “an anthology horror film inspired by the well-documented history of supernatural phenomenon in Rhode Island.” Much of the action will take place in and around the Gorham House, a mysterious old hotel with a history of bone-chilling occult activity. “In Erebus, we don’t just spit out ghost stories,” says Beaubien, “we make you feel as if you lived one.”
The movie stars horror icon Michael Berryman (The Hills have Eyes) The film also stars Michael LoCicero, Ally Tully, Marc Vos, Vanessa Leigh, Michael Varrati, Brandon Luis Aponte, Nicole Trychon, Cate Carson, Ryan Bonnick, Anthony Hoang, Glenn Robert, and Michael Zuccola.
According to the synopsis on vimeo-
Samantha and Benny journey to Block Island to investigate the hotel, seeking to document the building for a book. Along the way, the learn of its terrifying history, recounting three horrifying tales of its previous occupants. Robert Neville was the reclusive inheritor and owner of the Gorham House in the 1950s. Within the bowels of the hotel, he harbored a grotesque secret. Frank Martin was a forensic photographer, commissioned in the 1970s to photograph the building. As he worked, his pictures exposed a malevolent presence. When the crew of late 2000s TV show "Ghost Hunters" ventured to the Gorham House to investigate the rumored phenomenon, their pursuit of the supernatural provided their most substantial evidence to date. Excitement quickly turned to horror when the hotel's ghostly residents proved deadly.
Seeing Michael Berryman on the new poster is enough to make me want to see this but if that's not enough for you you can check out the trailer here.
This movie and H.P. Lovecraft really make me want to plan a vacation to Rhode Island someday! How about you?
